Google Android Event Canceled Due To Hurricane SandyBy: Zach Walton - October 29, 2012
Hurricane Sandy has been slowly moving its way up the east coast. It’s expected to hit New York City later tonight or early Tuesday morning. The impending storm has halted anything and everything in and around New York City.
Google has canceled its Android event due to take place this morning in New York City. The company has yet to reschedule the event, but I can’t see it being delayed over a week. Apple and Microsoft already had their events last week so Google can’t afford to hold it off for much longer.
Leaks and rumors suggested that Google was going to show off a number of new additions to its Nexus line of tablets and smartphones. First up, it’s already been pretty much confirmed that LG is making the Nexus 4. The phone sports a 4.7-inch 1280×768 screen and it’s powered by a 1.5GHz Quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. Even more interesting, it sports the newest version of Android – 4.2.
The other major hardware addition to the Nexus line is rumored to be the Nexus 10 – a 10-inch tablet built by Samsung. The device has been pretty much confirmed as images of the manual and the device itself have leaked to the Web. It’s rumored that the Nexus 10 will sport a resolution of 2560×1600. It will also be equipped with the Android 4.2 operating system.
On a final note, it was rumored that the event would bring some upgrades to Google’s current Nexus line as well. Specifically, the 8GB Nexus 7 would be getting the axe while the 16GB Nexus 7 would be dropped to $199. Taking its place would be a 32GB Nexus 7 for $249.
Google will most likely have a new date for its Android event before the end of the week. We’ll let you know when the new date is and we’ll be sure to bring you all the news from the rescheduled event.[h/t: Droid Life]
